Style-Assistant: Your Virtual Shopping Site

When shopping online wouldn't it be great to be able to see how clothing items look together and on a body? What if you could style those clothes in different ways to see how they work? Also wouldn't it be cool to ask friends and family if they like the look you came up with before you buy? Style-Assistant allows you to be able to do those things and more. Heather Keiser, the developer of this site, is brilliant. She is a graphic designer/illustrator who taught herself coding for web design. She combined both of those skills and more and the result is Style-Assistant. Heather was the other guest at Steph Calvert's blog party this week and I was really excited by what she showed us. I want to share it with you! The site is still in beta and there are somewhat limited choices to shop from, but it will be growing quickly.

You start by searching on the bottom of the page for items. They are categorized to make it easy to shop. Once you choose your item, the right column allows you to change the color of that item if that's an option and even style things like tuck in tops, put scarves on many different ways. If you don't like the item, you can remove it. It's so much fun. As you shop too, you'll see the items listed on the top left with price and a total price for all of them together for you to keep track of how much you're spending.

So after putting together outfits, you then save them to your "Wardrobe". You can then allow family and friends to comment on them if they go to the site or you can post them onto Twitter or even Facebook. Go sign up, it's free and start shopping the easy way. You don't have to sign up to search and put together items, but you have to be registered to save them on the site and purchase them. If you have questions, ask away. I'll contact Heather if I don't know them.

Thanks so much for featuring the site!! It looks like you made an account, right when we were transferring to the new server. Please let me know if you are having any issues, and I'll make my husband fix everything.
